responsibilities is asking tough questions of science is often in cheerleading. those who ask a lot of tough questions of lot of headlines are that science events is but not until later when people start to ask questions about what happened in the long ago so it is important to ask the questions of ethics but also not demonize science in the process. of this is portraying the people behind the science in sometimes well-intentioned scientists accidentally have negative effects. i thought it is important to present the issues but not a scare people so much of the story is about african-americans who have a history of being afraid to go to the doctor because the history of being used in research. i didn't want to make that problem worse. site and this is scary to people rather nanotechnology that we don't understand or cloning a or it is easy to scare people. how do i balance all of these things? asking the tough questions but making clear the science says good. i don't want to scare people away from going to the doctor. people often come to my even ince that i am supposed to go to the doctor n

in the essential pillars of economic growth like education, work force readiness, science, research, and innovation. i believe there are significant savings that can be achieved in our health care system without comprising the quality of care and in fact, while improving the quality of care. and without slashing benefits that are senior -- our seniors have worked so hard for and earned. have estimated that we could save $1 trillion per year without affecting health care outcome. and by enacting smart, targeted health care delivery reform. the institute of medicine estimated this number could be $7 50 billion. no matter what the exact figure or proposal these are impressive savings that trenten our nation's health care system without shifting cost and burdens to senior and our states. in addition, these reforms have the added benefit of improving quality outcomes within the health care system. so before we continue to obsessively put benefit cut on the table, i would hope that we can begin a dialogue about finding solutions that produce health care cost savings. and i'm confident if both parties in

group which was then called the champion tree project. i wrote a piece for the new york times science section and it was about his efforts to clone the largest trees in the world, protect the genetic so that if he were to clone, say a redwood tree, he would take a branch and just make copies of it. cloning and copy. it doesn't mean tissue cloning necessarily. just means making copies. so you would take a branch and grow it or take many branches and growth and. so you would have multiple exact genetic duplicate of that tree and his plan was to take those copies and planted them around the world to protect the genetics in case something happened to the trees. he first started cloning trees in the mid 1990s, 95, 96. he was working in tucson. they would borrow a pickup truck from his dad and a printer and they would go out and then ask land owners permission to cut a few cuttings from the tree and bring those cuttings back and grow copies of them. at the time when he first had this vision, and i call the division because that's how he describes it, he says he had a near-death experience b

back to the ideological struggle. ten years ago the defense science board released a report to don rumsfeld in which it said, quote: the united states cannot win the war on terror unless we win the war on ideas, and we're losing the war on ideas. that is true today. during world war ii we and the buritz had great prop -- and the brits had great propaganda. reagan's comments to gorbachev, take down the wall. why are we so inept is in not having a gray and white propaganda campaign to discredit and do all the things we need to do? the only thing state is doing is trying to turn a couple youth off the internet from becoming recruiters for al-qaeda. why is it impossible for us to mount the campaign that could have big dividends for a small amount of money? >> well, a couple things. again, quote tom friedman twice in the same morning, same piece he wrote, you know, to underscore the fact that we're not winning the ideological struggle, syria, i think, is a great example of that. because, okay, you've got assad -- not popular by any stretch of the imagination -- you've got a lot of sort
science. he was invited with less than a week's notice to come before this committee. he couldn't make it that day. he asked for some other day. he went to omb and had nothing to do with the solyndra contract. did he come before us and talk about it. the sole role is to represent omb. i don't think he ought -- there ought to be any disparagement of him. he is a very wealth regarded public servant. >> the gentleman's public will stand. >> thank you, mr. chairman. welcome madam secretary. now we all agree the website problems must be resolved. this country invented and developed internet and the concept of the web sites. so there are high expectations. the fact that the hired private contractors didn't build the website in three years is inexcusable. i hope those at fault will be held accountable. we can't lose sight of the big picture that, when this is all said and done every american will have affordable quality health insurance and health care. this is a goalie believe of all democrats and republicans. the aca is working in california and is working in my district in sacramento. i ju
is quoted in "the christian science monitor" as saying it is a raw deal for the young. he said premiums will go up for young people to subsidize the elders. guest: i think his facts are wrong. if you look at the numbers that are coming out, they are actually lower than anticipated. again, if you make $17,000 a year, you are a young person, you can find a plan for $15 a month, $40 a month, and potentially less. if you make $25,000 a year, you might find a plan for $75 a month, $100 a month. the uninsured single, young adult population would qualify for insurance under $50 a month. fail to those studies take into account the subsidies which disproportionately help people at the lower end of the economic spectrum, which happens to be a lot of young people. host: well, the penalties for the uninsured in 2014 -- next year it will be $95 per adult, or one percent of family income, whichever is lower. 3 hundred $25 per adult, in2% of income, and finally 2016, 600 $95 per adult, or 2.5% of family income. the think those are fair? guest: it is important to have a system where everybody pays in.
there is a very legitimate debate over which side is more likely to win. all this is sort of art based on science. it is a little bit of both. , first of all, jennifer duffy, our senate or governor, editor. she has been doing this since 1988. i have been doing it since 1984. have seen every seat come out. what we hear from strategist, what we have from people was talked in the state, what the numbers look like. what the opposition looks like. restart a for the general assessment and these things evolve over the course of an election cycle. mcconnell oftch kentucky. the senate republican leader and the democratic side mark dreier who is seeking reelection. then you have to currently democratic seats that are leaning republican in montana and west virginia. a number of lean democratic seats held by democrats baggage another in indiana, mary landrieu in indiana. carl levin is retiring in michigan and kay hagan who is seeking reelection in north carolina. the way i start offending it up seatsre are 34 democratic that are not up this time. 31 republican. then thereabouts seven gimme putts for democrat
, education, research, science, technology and the well over, when you add in interest on the public debt, 2/3 of the federal budget is basically medicare, medicaid, social security, defense spending and interest on the public debt. that is where the money is, that is where we're going to make any progress inwe reducing spendingn the future we have to focus our attention. >> host: carl from chicago, illinois, on the line for democrats. you're on with mr. hoagland. >> caller: good morning, gentleman. mr. hoagland, you're saying a balance between spending and revenues. i think thatth you got it wrong. this is where the problem is in my eyes. in 2000 we had a balanced budget anhad surplus. republican chose to take all the surplus and borrow money to have tax cuts, okay? they said that we could have a war. in six weeks it wasn't going to cost as you dime. that wasn't true. it cost us a trillion or two dollars, maybe one or two trillion doll -- $2 trillion. we had the recession where americans lost 30% of their net worth and lost gdp because the recession started in 2007. gdp in 2007 and 8. which
